I’m sure I can speak for most (if not all) bakers out there when I say that every once in a while you get a request that is so “your style” that when the person shares their idea and asks you to make this cake your response is “OH HELL YES!”….ok most of the time its “Yes, I can totally do that.” while you’re dancing around the room screaming for joy. This was one of those cakes.
The beautiful bride, Rachel, came to me in search of a Groom’s cake of epic proportions….I like to think I held up my end of the bargain.
You may recall my talk of being a nerd back in the post about my Baby Star Wars cake, well with that, add “gamer nerd”. My brother James (you met him back in the TA DA! cake post) had EVERY gaming system you could imagine growing up. I’m not exaggerating…my poor mother would cringe every December when my darling baby brother would produce his “wish list” for Santa and it of course would consist of the newest and greatest system and you could hear the money running from her purse. So basically we had it all, and Ive played my fair share of games. Two of my favorite characters in the video-gaming world were “Link” from Legend of Zelda (yes the boy is named Link by the way….NOT Zelda) and Mario, from well…Super Mario. Both of these guys hold a special place in my heart. So when Rachel requested a “Super Mario”, “Legend of Zelda”, & “TMNT” mash-up cake (you already know how I feel about those turtles), not only did I say “YES!”, but I did that “dance of screaming joy” I mentioned earlier.
The initial design was cool…
but with Rachel’s creative thinking it went from “cool” to “BEST cake ever”…
(yea I know the second one isn’t colored…I got lazy…shhhh)
Now I know what you’re thinking, “Well Sara, its one thing to draw out a concept of the ‘BEST cake ever’ but did it really come out just as awesome?”…to answer your question….
and just in-case you need some more….
The end result made me squeal like a 5 year old on a sugar high, that finally got that pony she was asking for. My favorite part is definitely the Goomba though. I wanted to keep him….but I decided the cake needed him more than me.
Hope you all enjoy!
